October 20, 2017

Reserve

  • The Reserve girls will finish their season with a home match (Huntley Meadow) today (Friday 10/20) vs. Sharon Academy – game time is 4:15pm. Be there to see a team that has improved dramatically finish out their season.
  • Monday October 16 – “The visiting Sunapee Lakers struck early with 3 goals in the first 20 minutes of the match thus creating a hole that the Reserves could not crawl out from, and went on to win 6-2.  It wasn’t for lack of trying as the team never gave up, creating a number of scoring opportunities in the second half. The Reserves broke through late in the first half when Anna Glenn calmly eluded the goalie who had come way off her line, and found Luna Falkenberg on the back post. The Reserves continued to pound away at the visitors playing the majority of the second half in the Lakers end of the field and were rewarded for their efforts when Kelly Citera, on a set piece, delivered a beautiful cross to Molly French for the second goal. Coach Mark Alloway said after the match, “I thought we played well after we settled down. The result was not indicative of the way we played, especially in the second half. The team played the way that Coach Kelsey Redpath and I expect them to and we were very pleased with their efforts.” Alloway was quick to praise defender Sophia Bracket saying “Sophia really stepped up in the second half and completely shut down their best player.” Alloway also praised defender Annika Milliman saying “Annika has been battling serious back problems for almost a year. She has had to work herself slowly back onto the field and it was very special to finally get her on the field and to see her play so well.”
